Condition for Forum Contains Unread Posts?

On my forums I don't use post icons etc... The only annoyance this causes is that on the forum home forums that contain unread posts don't look any different to forums with no new posts.

I would like to style them differently. Is there a simple if statement that would allow me to check if the forum has unread posts?

Check the value of $forum['statusicon'].

"new" = new posts, "old" = no new posts.
